It has been found in studies that couples who work together stay together. But stronger relationship is not the only benefit of couple workouts. When couples workout together or pursue fitness goals together they get better results. Here are a few reasons why couple workouts are beneficial.
Strengthens your relationship.
Working out together helps couple become closer and more attracted to one another. The physiological arousal during the workout and other physical activity sessions resemble romantic excitement and sends signals to each other’s mind. Couples can actively manipulate for their benefit. Besides sharing activities bring the partners closer. Exercise also helps prevent stress in both the partners and this positively affects their conjugal life. Improved body image in both as a result of exercise also tend to increase physical attraction.
Your partner’s presence mean more efficient workouts.
Your efficiency while doing an activity increases in presence of another person. The presence of your romantic partner in your workout sessions can be immensely beneficial to your workout efficiency. However, if you are just learning to do some complex activity and are still struggling with it then it may be a better idea to first master basic level of efficiency and then inviting your partner.
Achieve fitness goals together as a couple.
When a couple is pursuing a fitness goal together, they motivate each other to achieve it. Also the supportive comments from each other helps them achive targets. When fitness goals become a shared dream with your partner it becomes more important for you to pursue. As a couple you not only care for your own fitness but for your partner’s fitness as well.
If both the partners do not have any common favourite exercise or activity then you need not force yourself or your partner to share something one of you does not like. But at least one day of the week can be dedicated to common workout sessions. Motivate your partner to exercise with incentives like holidays to amazing destinations or romantic dinner if he or she is not into exercise already.
